I could swear this was working correctly before v4.x but I could be mistaken...

 

Please see screenshot below -- I'm sorting by Album Artist and note that artists starting with "the" are being sorted by "the." It looks like system.xml is configured correctly (I haven't changed defaults):

  <SortRemoveWords>
    <string>the</string>
    <string>a</string>
    <string>an</string>
  </SortRemoveWords>

Thanks!

This should work fine when sorting lists of artists, but when sorting albums by artists, not currently. It's something we can look at in a future update. thanks.
